Wellness Wednesday Tip #23

Happy #WellfieWednesday friends!

     This week is our second Wellfie Wednesday workout challenge! In honor of the upcoming Spartan Race I’m participating in this weekend, this week’s challenge is to knock out 30 burpees! While this is the penalty for not completing an obstacle during the Spartan Race, it also makes a great, quick conditioning workout. You can do them all at once or split them up throughout the day, the choice is yours.

If regular burpees are too boring for you check out this list of variations: http://www.livestrong.com/slideshow/1011335-15-burpee-variations-kick-butt/

     Or, if you’re feeling particularly frisky, try taking on The Burpee Mile – traveling one mile by jumping forward rather than vertically following the traditional burpee.

     So give it a shot, and let us know how it goes! Thanks again for all of the #WellfieWednesday support, be sure to post your pictures again this week and tag Patrick (@PBernerSPT) or myself (@Eric_in_AmERICa) and keep the wave of healthy change going!
